Back in August, when young people collected their GCSE results, there were some fantastic individual success stories.

And now we have the whole borough finalised results, showing that our secondary schools have once again achieved results that are above the national average.

These schools are helping our young people to succeed, whatever their potential, talent or background, and that is exactly the platform that Camden Council wants our schools to provide.
